'Opening to things as they are is what it really means to be still, to be quiet, to be in a state of mediation; when you no longer resist reality as it is, you could say that you're in a constant state of meditation. We're not just talking about a moment of contemplation or peace, but rather a way of changing our relationship with life such that our experience is not based in conflict, judgment, and constant evaluation. In this way, meditation becomes something that permeates our life in every moment.' - Adyashanti

'Conflict isn't inherent in existence - existence is just the way it is. Conflict only comes from our relationship with life. Inner conflict only comes from our relationship with ourselves.' - Adyashanti

Everybody is glad to be. But few know the fullness of it.
You come to know by dwelling in your mind on 'I am', 'I know', 'I love' ā€”
with the will of reaching the deepest meaning of these words.

Prepare yourself for the coming astral journey of death by daily riding in the balloon of God-perception.
Through delusion you are perceiving yourself as a bundle of flesh and bones, which at best is a nest of troubles.
Meditate unceasingly, that you may quickly behold yourself as the Infinite Essence, free from every form of misery. ~Paramahansa's Guru's Guru

'Attention is essential, obviously, absolutely essential for awakening, and for liberation. That's why most of the classical teachings include the practice of stillness, physical stillness - not rigid, controlled stillness, but open, relaxed stillness - as a prerequisite for transformation. In stillness the energy can really begin to channel and move, and gradually it can dissolve the blocks in the system.' - Jon Bernie

"Since all things are naked, clear, and free from obscurations, there is nothing to attain or realise. The everyday practice is simply to develop a complete acceptance and openness to all situations and emotions. And to all people – experiencing everything totally without reservations and blockages, so that one never withdraws or centralises onto oneself.” -Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche

Make yourself familiar with the angels and behold them frequently in spirit; for without being seen, they are present with you.

The real question is not whether life exists after death,
The real question is whether you're alive before death.
